Mirror Mirror

i was 7 –
pigtails, porcelain skin
missing two front teeth
running wild, screaming loud
mirror mirror, am i pretty?

i was 10 –
bobby pins, messy hair
crooked teeth, bright smile
beaming wide, holding in
mirror mirror, am i pretty enough?

i was 14 –
rebellious dyed hair
brace face, black lipstick
mascara running down my cheeks
mirror mirror, am i pretty yet?

i am 19 –
nothing else matters except for
my sobbing eyes that forgot to smile,
my bloody wrists, the scars on my thighs
mirror mirror, am i pretty now?
